Progress!

I have been working on Vervaco Temptation this week and I am pleased with my progress - still a long way to go but getting there. This weekend was International Hermit and Stitch Weekend again and I worked on LHN's Simple Joys. I am REALLY pleased with my progress on this. I normally try to stay in on a Sunday but decided that as I am on holiday next week I would stitch on Saturday as well, the ironing can wait until during the week lol - priorities. This is a great stitch and am loving it. Thank you to all those that leave me comments - I do appreciate them and they quite often make me giggle, especially when you justify my new starts for me. Until next time happy stitching Lesleyanne xxx

SNAP! My ironing pile is almost as tall as me after a very lazy weekend and stitching coming first ~ but we don't do that often do we so why not!!! Both stitches progressing well, everytime you post a pic of Temptation I can clearly see the difference but can understand how another stitch on the go helps, it's nice to be able to alternate.
Have a good week xxx

Love seeing your progress. I love Simple Joys with the big flower going over the house. Hope you have a lovely holiday (and enjoy the ironing! I think most things come before ironing)

Lovely progress Lesleyanne, ironing can wait! Especially since I have a big basket full waiting for me too. :) looking forward to seeing more progress.

Temptations looks stunning as ever, and I love you LHN piece. Hope you enjoy a wonderful holiday!

Oh.... there's my girl!!! Man, I love her back. LOL!! Simple Joys is looking wonderful as well.

Speaking of ironing, I have a month's worth to do, but who wants to iron when one can stitch, eh? ;)

Wow Lesleyanne - Tempatation is looking stunning! I have Simple Joys to start - a b'day gift from the lovely Barb.
Not trying to start a competition or anything but I bet my ironing pile is bigger than yours!

Lovely progress on both Lesleyanne. Simple Joys is so pretty.

Hope you have a good holiday. Get plenty of stitching time in:)

Both projects are coming along nicely! I agree it's all about getting our priorities straight :) Stitching first, everything else later! LOL. My dh would agree with that too. I'll email you a bit later on today :) I'm slowly getting all caught up.
